6 The Challenges of CO 2 reduction in Taiwan Climate Change  The CO 2 emission ranking of Taiwan is 20 th. Energy and Industry Structure  The trend of energy supply is unfavorable for reducing CO 2 emission due to the “nuclear-free home land” policy.  The dependence on foreign energy supply is very high (98%).
